Fleeting Bromance x Letdown: 2017 NBA All-Star Game Running Diary

Running diaries are so 2010. But I’m lazy and unoriginal. So I said to myself, “Hey, why not make a running diary of the 2017 NBA All-Star Game?” To which I answered, “Okay.” So here it is! A completely self-indulgent running diary of the 2017 NBA All-Star Game! See, lazy and unoriginal.
